Finally I received my iMac 27 i5 yesterday! The iMac was shipped out on Dec 11, 2009 as scheduled from Shanghai, China. That time was Friday evening close to 8:00. Then it was quickly scanned on departure on the next day. On the same day it arrived at Japan and it took only 2 hours in the out. Then a long journey started. From north west Anchorage, AK, 2 days there, down to south Louisville KY, up north east to Buffalo NY, it took 5 days in US. When it arrived in Canada Mount Hope, ON, it was another weekend. Each weekend the iMac stayed for 2 days. When it was delivered to my house on Dec 21, I missed the first time because my wife and my daughter went out. Fortunately, the UPS tried to delivery on second time on the same day. My wife accepted the package. That’s was a surprise, because I phone UPS for me to pick it up on the next day and I was not expecting it.

I had not problem running PsExec.exe to zip a file on Windows XP box before. However, this time for that Windows XP box, I got a failure: Access denied.
